Actually, you better change 'expr_if.hpp' as well (just in case). I think that
will fix all of the library constructs.
// remove the inclusion of <boost/preprocessor/detail/cat.hpp>
// change BOOST_PP_EXPR_IF to this:
#define BOOST_PP_EXPR_IF(COND,EXPR) \
#define BOOST_PP_EXPR_IF_BOOL(COND,EXPR) \
#define BOOST_PP_EXPR_IF_BOOL_DELAY(COND,EXPR) \
But I think that user code might still run into this type of problem--so I think
that all the BOOST_PP_DETAIL_CAT2 (etc.) changes should be rolled back so at
least the library is ready for it.
